Pregunta: Mi nombre es LeeAnn y mi viejo hijo de 3 años, Cameron, no ha comido todo menos el helado y el pudin por 3 meses. Hemos hecho varias pruebas hacer y sus pediatras no se parecen tomarme seriamente porque él no es peso perdidoso. Pienso que él es justo manteniendo su peso y eso que él necesita comer una cierta clase de alimento sólido. él se queja de un dolor de estómago dolorido de la garganta y pero nada está demostrando para arriba en pruebas. Esto ha sido muy agotador y apreciaria cualquier información que usted podria proveer de mi.

Hi LeeAnn,

Apesadumbrado de oir que usted está luchando con há bitos el comer de Camerons. No es inusual por 3 años viejos tener algunos há bitos muy extraños el comer. Y no es infrecuente para ellos al áltimo 3 meses. Incluso tienen un nombre para él que se llaman las puntas del alimento o las puntas el comer.

Las gargantas del estómago aches/sore de Camerons podian ser debido a demasiada lecheria en su dieta. Esto no es infrecuente, especialmente si él tiene cualquier forma de la lactosa-intolerancia (un problema comán entre niños). Los sintomas comunes de los intolerances de la lactosa son dolores de estómago y heartburn (en reflujo á cido del caso de Camerons podria qué él está llamando una garganta dolorida), usted pueden desear preguntar a su médico acerca de esto, o si usted cree verdad hay un problema de salud, consulta a otro médico.

La otra explicación para sus dolencias podria ser que él sabe que un dolor de la panza o una garganta dolorida es una manera de conseguir el helado y el pudin. Cameron pudo demostrando sus habilidades de la excepción en la manipulación una tá ctica que es extremadamente comán entre niños.

Cualquier manera, helado y pudin no es una dieta sana, variada para cualquier persona, especialmente niño creciente. Usted necesita tomar la carga de la situación y comenzar a corregirla. Usted tiene un comedor picky, y usted necesita trabajar en ampliar opciones el comer de Camerons.

En primer lugar, usted necesita prepararse para el griterio, las rabietas de la resistencia, rechazando comer cualquier cosa, el etc... Esto no será fá cil él ha acumulado malos há bitos sobre los áltimos tres meses. Comienzo hacia fuera sentando Cameron abajo y explicá ndo a él no es sano comer el helado y el pudin toda la hora. Digale que sus dolores de la panza podrian ser de demasiada crema y pudin agradables. Déjelo saber es hora para él de comenzar a comer muchos otros alimentos, asi que él puede ser un muchacho grande, fuerte. Usted necesitará tener esta charla muchas veces.

Usted puede continuar ofreciéndole un poco de helado o pudin con las comidas. Déle las porciones pequeñas, de lo que él come normalmente. Usted no desea darlo bastante para hacerlo lleno. En los tiempos de la comida y del bocado, ofrézcale tres a cinco diversas opciones (porciones pequeñas) en alimentos. Ningán pudin, ningán helado. Digale que él necesita intentar cada alimento, antes de que él pueda tener una porción del pudin o del helado. No haga que él come todo. . This is too much to ask.

. As a first step, select foods that have similar textures to ice cream and pudding. . Food such as applesauce (or other pureed fruits), oatmeal, grits, mashed potatoes (white or sweet) pureed veggies, cream soups, mashed beans, egg or tuna salad (no crunchy things). . Introduce other food textures slowly.

. Do not have ice cream and pudding stored in places he has access to (or can see) HIDE THEM. . This is very important. . When you tell him there is none left, he will go looking for it.

. Dont worry if Camerons completely refuses to eat at a meal or two. . When he gets hungry, he will eat. . If he mentions he is hungry during the day, offer him food (no pudding, no ice cream).

. Here are some other strategies that may help you:

. Include them: . Children are more likely to eat something that they have helped make, so get your children involved in preparing meals. . You can also take them shopping and teach them how to find and select foods. . Involving them in making decisions reinforces that you care about their opinion and want to make things that they like. . Never ask "Do you want broccoli for dinner?" offer choices like "Do you want broccoli or cauliflower for dinner?".

. Set Goals: . Be realistic about setting goals. . It is not realistic to try to force your child to eat a whole serving of food that they claim not to like. . Instead start off with small expectations, like one bite of the new food, and work your way up from there.

. Be consistent and firm: . Use the same tactics at each and every meal. . Put new foods on your child's plate first. . Remind your child of the goal and offer plenty of encouragement. . Don't give in to stubbornness. . It may also work to try "Look mommy (or daddy) will try a bite with you."

. Praise: . Even if it is just one nibble, congratulate your child. . For a picky eater - this little nibble is a big deal. . Ask them if they thought it was tasty. . If the say "no", tell them it may take a few bites to notice the delicious flavor or suggest maybe it would taste better with ketchup on it. . The point being, don't let them shutdown the thought that this food may actually taste good someday.

. Be a good role model: . It is plain and simple. . You cannot expect to raise children that eat a good variety

. Q: . Do you have any suggestions to encourage a 6 year old little boy whom has texture issues to try foods other than French fries, chips, wet oatmeal, and grits?

. Sorry to hear that your son is having difficulty with textures. . He is actually eating quite a few different textures. . If he is experiencing choking and gagging from eating various textured foods, he needs to improve his oral motor skills.

. To stimulate oral motor skills, you can try 1 x 1" cubes of firm cheeses (i.e. . cheddar, co-jack, string cheese, etc....). . Or yogurt with whole fruit pieces mixed into it. . Also raw veggies are good. . Avoid raw veggies that have strings (green beans, snap peas, etc...). . Frozen raw veggies (peas, corn, French cut green beans) are also very good. . They will help your son learn with textures because the food starts out hard and softens as it defrosts in his mouth.

. In addition, soups and stews with firm but fully cooked chunks of meats, carrots, celery and potato are good too. . Since he eats oatmeal, try adding healthy items to it (chopped nuts, raisins, dried cranberries, raisins, and sunflower seeds).

. Avoid foods that are stingy or slimy (cooked spinach, okra, etc..). . But encourage him to try raw spinach.

. If your son is not choking and gagging, the texture complaint may be a comfortable excuse for not eating (or trying) a variety of foods. . If this is the case, try making the meals more appealing to him. . You can add sprinkles to oatmeal (with the new healthy touches added in) or a few M & M's , Make faces out of different foods on the plate. . Instead of sandwiches in his lunch make kabobs (spear cubes of cheese, lunchmeat, and fruit or cherry tomatoes onto toothpicks).

. Get him involved. . Children are more likely to eat something that they have helped make, so get your children involved in preparing meals. . You can also take them shopping and teach them how to find and select foods. . Involving them in making decisions reinforces that you care about their opinion and want to make things that they like. . Never ask "Do you want broccoli for dinner?" offer choices like "Do you want broccoli or cauliflower for dinner?".

. Encourage him to TRY everything, he doesn't have to finish it just try it! . Sometimes when you take the pressure off of a child they will respond positively.

. You need to be a good role model. . You cannot expect to raise children that eat a good variety of foods if you do not. . This fact goes for all adults who have meals with your children.

. As a final comment, we suggest you eliminate French fries and chips and from his diet and substitute food items with better nutrition. . Foods such as whole grain crackers, bagel chips or baked pita chips are good substitutes for chips. . Baked sweet potato fries are better than French fries.
